Cryosat QA

L2 Mispointing Angle Monitoring

IPF Baseline:
Phase:

Cryosat L2 data from Baseline-B onwards includes a parameter to show the mispointing angle of the antenna.

This is the angle between the antenna pointing (direction of beam) and the nadir direction.

Nominally this should be zero.

This tool provides global and polar plots of the L2 Mispointing Angle parameter for each 30-day data take for data from:

  • ascending passes,
  • descending passes,
  • all passes
